.... what a day!!! Cold, wet, windy and generally dull. Fortunately, inside it's warm and cosy, and my craft room has been a fun place to play. Some of what I've made I can't share with you just yet, but I had another go at the CAS-ual Fridays - CFC33 and Market Street Stamps - Block Party challenge and this one I can share!
I like playing with digi-images and the coffee mug (well for me it's got to be coffee) mug is a fun image. I made a copy of the original mug and flipped it, offset it and then printed the image. I used one of my lovely new nesties to cut out the shape and inked all over with Distress Antique Linen. I coloured a couple of the other mug images with Promarkers, cut out the little hearts and layered them onto the image. I added a bit of sparkle to the steam. Finally I mounted the image onto a mat of kraft card. Before attaching the image, I stamped a line of steam coils along the bottom edge and wrapped some string around the card. Then, using the smallest nestie, I cut out a sentiment label - perfectly coordinated to the image!
